Comparison between dry heat sterilization and moist heat sterilization?
Mechanism of killing by dry heat
Mechanism of killing by moist heat
- Dry heat kills the organisms by destructive oxidation of essential cell constituents
- Killing of the most resistant spores by dry heat requires a temperature of about 160 °C for 60 minutes
- Dry heat is employed for glassware; syringes, metal instruments and paper wrapped goods, which are not spoiled by high temperatures.
- It is also used for anhydrous fats, oils and powders that are impermeable to moisture.
Mechanism of killing by moist heat
- Moist heat kills the organisms by coagulating and denaturing their enzymes and structural protein.
- Sterilization by moist heat of the most resistant spores generally requires 121 °C for 15-30 minutes.
- Moist heat is used for the sterilization of culture media, and all other materials through which steam can penetrate
- Moist heat is more effective than dry heat
- Sterilization can be done at lower temperatures in a given time at a shorter duration at the same temperature.
- upon heating wet proteins release free -sh groups and form smaller peptide chains which in turn form new complexes different from the orignal protein molecules

A steriliser is something that destroys microorganisms in or onsomething, usually by bringing to a high temperature with steam,dry heat, or boiling liquid.
Dry Heat Sterilization by Devansh . Dry-heat sterilization is generally a less complicated process than steam sterilization; it is, however, relatively slow and requires higher temperatures and/or longer exposure times. This is because of the fact that microbial lethality is lower with dry heat t…han that for steam at the same temperature. ( Full Answer )
Sterilization is process of eliminating or killing all the microbes in a food by heating, irradiating, etc.It is also the method by which all contaminations are completely destroyed.. Sterilization is the elimination of microbiological organisms. Thisis also known as microbiology.
Answer . Two meanings to sterile, that I know of.. 1. Completely clean, sanitized, free of bacteria. Must be done by boiling, disinfecting etc.. 2. Unable to reproduce due to some abnormality or deliberate modification of reproductive organs (when you talk about 'sterilising' a pet, that means… spay/neuter to avoid unwanted babies.). ( Full Answer )
sterilizers . Sterilizers are the instruments that are used to kill or eliminate transmissible substances(bacteria,fungi etc) on any surface or object by the application of heat, irradiation etc .. The process is called sterilization
The canning process is to preserve the food in the can.Sterilization is the process of killing bacteria that is normallyheat resistant.
Sterilization with steam under pressure. mainly at 121 degrees C, 15 pounds of pressure and for 20 mins. Pressure should be 1.2 Kg/cm
If you are female it means that you cannot get pregnant and if you are male it means that you cannot get someone pregnant.

Advantages: 1. It is faster method of sterilization then dry heat method. 2. Additional parameter "pressure" is involved 3. We can easily sterilize the media solution. 4. It faster method of sterilization. Disadvantages: 1. Glass ware might get broken down. 2. Mishandling may lead to serious acci…dent or explosion. ( Full Answer )
Why does dry heat require higher temperatures for longer time periods to sterilize than does moist heat?
Water has a higher heat capacity than air. In other words, air is a very poor conductor of heat while water is a very efficient conductor of heat.
They are different sterilization methods for medical instruments, consumables, devices and Implantable devices. Depending on the nature of the product to sterilize is the method used. Sterilization can be achieved through application of heat, chemicals, irradiation, high Pressure or filtration. Heat… Sterilization is divided in two categories: . Dry Heat Sterilization . Moist Heat sterilization Dry heat sterilization of an article is one of the earliest forms of sterilization practiced. Dry heat, as the name indicates, utilizes hot air that is either free from water vapour, or has very little of it, and where this moisture plays a minimal or no role in the process of sterilization. Methods Used: . Hot air oven . Incineration or Burning . Flamming . Radiation . Microwave The most used in the medical field is "Hot air Oven" Moist Heat Sterilization as the name indicates, utilizes hot air that is heavily laden with water vapour and where this moisture plays the most important role in the process of sterilization. Methods Used: . Water bath . Pasteurization (milk) . Boilling . Steam Sterilizer . Autoclave The most used in Medical Field is "Autoclave" Hot Air Oven Advantages and Disadvantages. They do not require water and there is not much pressure build up within the oven, unlike an autoclave, making them safer to work with. This also makes them more suitable to be used in a laboratory environment. They are much smaller than autoclaves but can still be as effective. They can be more rapid than an autoclave and higher temperatures can be reached compared to other means. As they use dry heat instead of moist heat, some organisms like prions, may not be killed by them every time. Autoclave Advantages and Disadvantages. Moist heat coagulates the proteins in any organism and this is aided by the water vapour that has a very high penetrating property, leading to their death. It also causes oxidative free radical damage This can even, at high enough temperatures ( vide:Autoclave ), kill prions. These are widely used to sterilize articles that can withstand high temperatures and not get burnt, like glassware and powders. Linen gets burnt and surgical sharps lose their sharpness.

The pasteurization is carried out for a prolonged time at around 170Â°F and is supposed to kill only heat susceptible organisms and their spores, while sterilization works at a temperature of 250Â°F and is supposed to kill all organisms.
It is very effective at sterilizing the pieces you need cleaned. Itis also fairly quick and easy to do.
With sterilization, you destroy all living things. With decontamination, you don't necessarily remove something living.
Water conducts heat better than air. Likewise, moist air also conducts heat better than dry air (as anyone who's been outside on a hot, humid day knows very well). That's the rationale.. The reality is that, in the case of compresses, there's very little difference. The patient sweats. Don't waste …money on special damp hotpacks. If you feel you need that, make your own with hot water and a washcloth.. As always, be cautious with heat -- don't burn your patient. ( Full Answer )
WELL! moist heat is used by heating with steam and the steam can not be formed below 100 o C so it is not possible to kill microorganism by moist heat below hundred degree
Sterile distilled water has no microbial contamination and is distilled and and sterile water merely has no microbial contamination. Distillation is the process of separation by heating a liquid until it evaporates and then condensing the steam back into a purer liquid as all contamination remains …in the part which does not evaporate.

Dry sterilizers are now in most countries considered junk, most health inspection agencies are requiring facilities upgrade to steam autoclaves.Stream autoclaves use the high temperature and steam pressure to kill spores and bacterial growth on all reusable equipment. To ensure the sterilizer is fun…ctioning correctly spore tests are required and in some cases must be done every month, the record of these tests must be posted and kept on file for health department inspection.. Dry heat sterilizers tend to damage equipment and in most cases fail to completely kill bacterial and spore growth on the instruments . ( Full Answer )
There are several methods of sterilization, including the use ofchemicals. Heat can also be used to sterilize some objects.
If refering to being clean, sterilization is preventing infection and disinfection is removing an existing contamination.
The production of healthy sperm requires a cool environment, about 3 or 4 degrees C lower than core temperature. Thus keeping the testicles warm will result in malformed batched or sperm that will be next to usless fertily. But this will only affect the batched produced when the testicles are warm a…nd so no long term effects like sterility occur. ( Full Answer )
Somebody had better cool them down fast because they can cook themselves if the temperature is high enough. and you cool them down with an ice bath. Even though the ice stings at first touch it will cool them down. If it doesn't cool down or re heats itself then go to an emergency room. O_O
Sterilization is used for preventing the spoilage of food. Food is sterilized by exposing it to light temperature of 120 C to 126 C under pressure for 12-90min. Food and other thing are made free from disease causing organism for example bacteria through this process. Milk is pasteurized by heating… it at 71 C fir 15sec or at 62 C for 32min. By this pasteurization process the bacteria are killed and the taste of milk is not affected. ( Full Answer )
disinfectant gets most of the viruses and bacteria off of something, while complete sterilization is there is absolutely NOTHING on that object. period. it is generally for surgical use that people sterilize rather than disinfect!
Dry heat = 1-2hrs @ 160-170 degrees Celsius Moist heat = 15min. @ 121 degrees Celsius
Dry heat cooking is by applying heat directly without using any liquid such as water or wine. However, for Moist heat cooking, it is cooking food use by either hot water or steam. These methods include poaching, simmering, and steaming. It should also be noted that any cooking method using oil (deep… frying, sauteing, etc.) is considered dry heat cooking. ( Full Answer )
Disinfection and sterilization are both decontamination processes.Disinfection is the process of eliminating or reducing harmfulmicroorganisms from inanimate objects and surfaces. Sterilizationis the process of killing all microorganisms.
Pasteurization was used in China from the XI th century. Sterilization was also known from the antiquity but rarely used.
One is guaranteed to have no microorganisms on it inside the sterile packaging, the other is clean but is not guaranteed to have no microorganisms on it.
Moist heat is much higher then dry heat. Dry heat sterilization can be done close to room temperatures.
Sanitizing generally involves removing the contaminants that would grow bacteria while sterilizing involves killing the bacteria. Food can be sterilized such as when milk is Pasteurized.
sanitation is cleaning from most germs.. sanitation is completely eradicating the germs so there is nothing living on the surface of the sanitized area.
because dry heat transfers heat less effectively to a cool body than moist heat does.
no advantages if to me...if you think it have and advantage then do not use it ok??...why you such a suck idiot to ask something like that
To sanitize is to clean. That's the general term of clean. To disinfect is to remove germs. To sterilize is to keep germs off, like by keeping an object in alcohol for a long period of time.
Wet heat you get in a sauna bath where there is hot rocks and water is poured over to let steam into the air. Dry heat there is very little moisture in the air. Wet heat can feel hotter but can be easier to breathe in than dry heat.
sterile gloves are clean never before used gloves, while non-sterile gloves have been used but are clean
When a liquid is heat labile or can be destroyed by heat then this method is used.
Sanitizing is the process of killing and/or removing bacteria and microbes with chemicals. The effectiveness of sanitizing is determined by the chemical(s) used. For example: Plain water is an effective neutral sanitizer for removing most microbes from surfaces. However, it is not effective for… killing most bacteria or microbes. Alcohol is effective for killing and removing most bacteria and microbes. Sterilization is the process of killing bacteria and microbes with heat. The effectiveness of sterilization is determined by the level of heat used. Example: 160Â°F will kill most all bacteria and microbes that are known to be harmful to human life. However, there are microbes that may withstand temperatures up to 867.2Â°F. This means that it is impractical to achieve 100% sterilization. Common Misconceptions . Sanitizing and sterilization are the same. That notion is incorrect. Sanitizing is chemical and sterilization is thermal. . That either process is more or less effective than the other. That notion is incorrect. The effectiveness of sanitizing is determined by the chemical(s) used. And the effectiveness of sterilization is determined by the temperature. . That 100% sanitation and/or sterilization is practical. That notion is incorrect. There is no process that is capable of killing all life on a treated material, leaving the material undamaged and leaving the material safe to use. As someone once said... "If you can find a substance that is resistant to everything you'll find a form of life that wants to eat it or live in it." ( Full Answer )
Impotence is the inability of a male to perform the act of intercourse, through either mental, or most likely, biological means. Sterility is the lack of enough viable sperm to impregnate the female. Sterile males usually can perform intercourse, however.
Such preparations contain viable endospores dried on paper strips or suspended in nutrient broth within a sealed ampule. When appropriately placed within an autoclave load, endospores controls can indicate weather the autoclave is operating efficiently and mechanically; individual item packing is co…rrect; and load arrangement permits sterilization of every item.

If we limit our discussion to the enveloped viruses HIV, HCV and HBV, then lyophilization is a sterilization method as explained in my recent article [Cell Tissue Bank (2011) 12:99-104]. Desiccation of the lipid envelops inactivates these viruses.
The best way is to filter sterilize the solution using a nylon membrane/ syringe filter, of 0.45 micron pore size. If needed, dissolve Urea in autoclaved water and then filter sterilize.
Castration is the removal of the testicles from a male animal or person, which is a form of sterilization because sperm can no longer be produced. Sterilization of a male can be accomplished without castration, for example by vasectomy, which is cutting and cauterizing the tubes that carry sperm fro…m the testicles to the seminal vesicles. ( Full Answer )
High temperature destroys microorganisms .Moist and dry heat destroy parts of microbes via oxidation and incineration .
The sterile dog can not cause/have puppies, either because it has been spayed/neutered, or because of genetic issues.
The difference is that commercial sterilization takes place inirradiation chambers and regular sterilization does not. Airradiation chamber can hold up to 50 tons and is sealed up beforethe high energy x-rays kills off anything living.
Dry heat is the absolute substance temperature without accounting for the modulating effects of water vapor in the substance. Moist heat is the relative substance temperature when accounting for the modulating effects of water vapor.
Some of the best price comparisons between electricity and gas heating are found at the sites of various utilities themselves. Examples include Centerpoint Energy and Touchstone Energy.
Yes it is. Dry heat is used when the object (s) being sterilizedare heat sentitive. Some say that moist heat will drive the powerof sterilization deeper.
